Venezuelan fish habitats video

I came across this video of various habitats in Venezuela and would like to share it. I have posted some of Ivan's videos prevously, a while back now, and they are a good example of the sort of environment these various fish require to be at their best. That doesn't mean we need to go out and use mud substrates or something; but replicating their habitat as reasonably close as we can is the best way to provide for a healthy life.

Some of you might be a bit surprised at some aspects. Very instructional.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
